Harrington syndrome is a degenerative brain condition that results in irrational behavior, emotional issues, and loss of cognitive function (cognition).
Adult-onset The most prevalent form of this ailment, Harrington syndrome, typically manifests in a person's thirties or forties. Irritability, depression, minor involuntary movements, poor coordination, difficulty acquiring new information, and difficulty making judgments are some of the early indications and symptoms. A common symptom of Harrington syndrome is chorea, which are uncontrollable jerking or twitching motions. These motions intensify with the onset of the illness.
There are multiple treatments or medications for Harrington syndrome that can help a person adapt to changes in abilities for a certain amount of time. Some treatments are maintained below.
1. Speech therapy: The control of the mouth and throat muscles, which are necessary for speaking, eating, and swallowing, can be severely hampered by Huntington's disease. Your speech therapist can help you speak more clearly or teach you how to use communication aids, such as a board covered in images of commonplace objects and activities. Speech therapists can also address issues with swallowing and eating-related muscles.
2. Physical therapy: You can learn safe and effective exercises from a physical therapist to improve your strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination. These activities can aid in preserving mobility for as long as feasible and possibly lower the chance of falling.
